I think that is what Nick means in his ad.

As I understand it, at least in regards to Connecticut, they worded the law to prohibit any "select-fire" firearms. Their intention was to ban machineguns, but some enterprising, 2A-friendly fellow noted the wording of the CT law, argued semantics, and won since "select-fire" means capable of both semi- and full-auto.

As for being overpriced, aren't they all? I think the $550 I paid for my M11, and the $4k I paid for my TSMG are way overpriced, but with 922(o), but if you wanna play, you gotta pay.

There are a lot of details to this but I’m going to bed.
Happy “turkey day” to all.

I own one. I am still in the paperwork process, but the registered conversion device is at my class 3 dealer and is paid for. There were only ten of these registered. Mine is serial number BAGG-003.
They are designed as a "drop in" full auto only conversion, but with modifications to the device and the bolt in which it is attached, it can be made into a select-fire weapon. It does not require any modifications to the receiver.
The gun that contains this device can have a short barrel on it AS LONG AS THE DEVICE IS INTALLED! If it is removed and put into another gun or "parted" from the weapon, the short barrel must be removed. This is not neccessary if the gun is registered as an SBR. I have a letter from the ATF saying that this is ok to do. I am going to register my 27A1 as an SBR.
I look forward to clearing the paperwork for it so I can send my 27A1 to PK for some TLC.
